Have old bamboo coasters lying about? Well, save those corks because we have found 10 more ingenious ways to use them all around your house.
1. Cork Magnets
Cut corks in half lengthwise and them apply adhesive on each magnet strip. Press firmly on the flat side. And that is all.
2. Drawer Knobs
Hold a twist in place with a screwdriver. Next, firmly press a champagne cork against the screw and twist in a clockwise movement. Do the same for all the drawers. Your drawer knobs are ready.
You’ll need to gather up some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and little succulents. Cut a hollow shape in the center of each cork. Attach magnets into each cork by pushing hard. Then fill the hollow hole with soil and place a tiny succulent inside each one. Add a few drops of water and attach the planters to a metallic surface.
4. Jewelry Frame
Looking for ways to arrange your jewelry neatly? All you need is a frame that you like. Paint it. Cut out corks in long circular dimensions and fuse into the frame. If you want to personalize it a little more, you can wrap the corks in your favorite fabric.
All you need are cork tiles, white paint and brush, painter’s tape, and image hanging strips. Use the tape to the corks and proceed to make stripes. Next, organize tiles in a pattern and then start painting. Lastly, remove the tape and there you have it.
6. Mouse pad
All you’ve got to do is cut cork to size then bond them together along with a piece of thick silk paper. It’s better to keep it simple but you can design any form you desire.
7. Cork Wall
Have you been on the lookout for ways to spice up your kitchen? Is your kitchen backsplash too ordinary? Well no more. All you need is a piece of wood cut to the specific size of the area you would like to cover up. Next, begin massaging half-cut corks onto piece of wood until every inch is covered. You can elect to either attempt a pattern layout or just fasten them in a row formation.
8. Pencil Holder
You’ll require a power drill, cork trivets, and glue. Stick trivets on top of each other and press firmly. Next, with your drill bit, drill holes out and fill every hole with a writing device.
You’ll require a LOT of wine and champagne corks. All you have to do is simply gather all your corks and enclose them in a breathable and durable mesh fabric.
10. Cork Stamps
Why not make cute and special stamps with your corks? All you’ll need is a great knife, a sharpie and a whole lot of corks. Next, draw whatever design you want and then simply cut around it and slowly chip away any excess wood. Use ink and fill in your layouts and voila!
